Dad Comforts Dog in the Sweetest Way

April Livingston | February 19th, 2018

A woman named Annie Shi recently moved away from home to attend college. Since then, things just have not been the same in her family’s home; she is sorely missed by her parents. However, that pales in comparison to how much her dog Tara misses her. You see, Tara and Annie were the very best of friends, spending nearly every moment together and even sleeping in the same bed each night. When Tara left for school, she asked her parents to give her regular updates on Tara so she knew how she was doing and that is when she discovered that Tara was having trouble without her best friend.

Tara misses Annie so much, in fact, that she sits in front of her bedroom door and cries until the door is opened for her. Then, when she goes inside and realizes Annie is not there, she sadly walks away. Annie obviously loves Tara’s room, but without Tara there to be with her, she seemed so lost. So, Annie’s dad came up with the sweetest solution to the problem. Her dad has begun using his daughter’s bedroom as his office so that Tara the dog can spend time in her favorite place. The little dog loves to sleep and rest on Annie’s bed while he works, just like old times.

While Annie is definitely Tara’s favorite person, it seems the dog has really bonded with her dad since she’s been gone. Their daily tradition of working and sleeping in Annie’s bedroom has strengthened the bond between dog and man to be certain. Best of all, Annie does not live too far away from the family home and takes a short three hour train ride home as often as she can so she can visit with Tara. It’s safe to say the dog is always happy to see her!
